Scott & White breaking ground for new clinic in Belton
CENTRAL TEXAS, Texas – Scott & White Healthcare is building a new family medicine clinic in Belton near the corner of Loop 121 and Powell Avenue, near U.S. Hwy 190. The new 14,390 square-foot clinic is expected to be open by summer 2013.
A groundbreaking ceremony at the construction site today marked the start of building activity.
"We recognize the importance of responding to the growing and changing demand for family-centered primary care, especially in this new landscape under health care reform," said Dr. Michael Reis, chairman of family medicine for Scott & White Healthcare. "We’re building on the care that we have been providing in the Belton area, which we began 28 years ago when we established our first primary care clinic in the city."
The clinic will feature 24 exam rooms, two treatment rooms, on-site x-ray and laboratory services.
Dr. Stephen Sewell will serve as the medical director when the new facility opens. Dr. Sewell is a family medicine physician currently on the staff at the existing Scott & White family medicine clinic on N. Main Street in Belton.
American Constructors is building the clinic, which is designed by Michael W. Marrs Architect. Highline Real Estate Group is the developer of the project.
